Final week of New Ideas Festival is underway…

Week Three – the final week – of the 25th anniversary New Ideas Festival opened last night to a sold-out house in the 3rd floor Studio.   I could not see the show because I was in rehearsal downstairs for Alumnae Theatre’s next production, James Reaney’s The Killdeer, which runs April 12 – 27.

But I’ve reserved my New Ideas ticket for tonight, so will be reporting on the plays (Dead French Philosophers and What We Mean When We Talk About Love by James Papoutsis;  My Friend’s Best Friend’s Boyfriend by Wesley J. Colford; Eglinton by Anthony MacMahon; and My Red Feather Boa by Flora Stohr-Danziger) tomorrow.

Performances of the Week Three  lineup continue at 8pm until Saturday March 23, and there are also 2:30 pm matinees on Saturday March 23 and Sunday March 24.  Additionally, there’s a one-time staged reading of what stage manager Stevie Baker describes as “a badass one-woman show” (!), Everything But The Cat… by Adrianna Prosser.  Catch it at noon on Saturday, and read Stevie’s blog about the show at

Everything But The Cat...

Everything But The Cat…


Tickets for the 4-play weekly lineup (yes, you’ll see ALL 4 short plays for one price) are $15 – go to to purchase.  If you prefer not to purchase online, please reserve by phone at 416-364-4170 box 1, and bring cash to the Box Office to pay on arrival.  Tickets for the Saturday reading are only available for in-person cash purchase on the day of the reading.  Box Office opens one hour before performance times.

  1. Can’t believe NIF is in its final week already. I’ll be there on Friday night. Looking forward to it!
